October 4 – 26: Living History, Yellow Fever in Savannah: In October the Davenport House Museum will present a dramatic recreation of early 19th century life when yellow fever ravaged the city. Costumed interpreters portray residents coping with the realities of life during a catastrophe with an exploration of death and funeral customs, medical treatments as well as how various sectors of the population dealt with events. A highlight is moving through the candlelit rooms witnessing enactments. In an area seldom seen by visitors, the fate and experiences of the uncounted half of the city’s population, both free and enslaved African Americans, are revealed. Tickets are $16 in advance, $19 at the door, program starts at 7pm and runs for 45 minutes, every Friday and Saturday through October.
